An Indian restaurant in Bristol has pledged to play special songs by request for lovers on February 14 if they let them know in advance what music they want to accompany their spicy Valentine's night meal.
Staff at 4,500 Miles From Delhi in Colston Avenue, Bristol are planning to deliver a Valentine's Day treat that appeals to the ears, the tastebuds and the eyes!
With a one-off menu inspired by two traditional Punjab love stories and a mix of Bollywood-style 'his 'n' hers' cocktails the restaurant are aiming to cater for those who want their Valentine treat to be spicy.
Restaurant owner Nav Kandola said: "Music is the food of love and everyone has that special song. All diners need to do is let us know what they want played and they will hear it during their meal. If people have great food and great music then it is the perfect recipe for a Valentine evening."
The food is based on the stories of Heer Ranjha and Mirza Sahiban with parts of the story told on the table menus so diners can read for themselves these two tales and get an understanding of Indian folklore based on stories of true love.
Heer Ranjha is an epic true story of a couple who battled social class divides and the unconventional nature of their love, only to meet tragedy at the hand of a jealous uncle.
Mirza and Sahiban is a love-lore of Punjabi literature and tells the tale of two childhood playmates, who dared to love freely and rebel against the accepted social convention of their time.
